We stopped in on the road from Pinhao to porto for a late lunch. The food was fantastic, made fresh and really tasty. Great prices and range of food. We speak no Portuguese but found it no problem even in this remote place. Well worth a visit for a meal.

We have had 2 really nice meals at this restaurant. Food is cooked fresh and the service is second to none. One word of warning is that this place in England would be a sport bar, tele's all over the place.

This retaurante is famous for its meat. The veal comes from Marão and the veal is Doc Marounesa. The service is good and the wine list is very well suplied with wines that go from 7 Euros to 800 Euros. The place is by the firemen house and the decoration is modern.

Adega Regional Tatana

Reviewed By SilviaBessa - Porto, Portugal

This is the Portuguese version of pubs, but with a lot of good appetizers! Although it id not located in a visible place, you must go there. It is one of the kind! For a fair price you get a meal with all Portuguese appetizers you can think of and the main meal, if you still find space for it after the entrance.

Flavors of traditional root, which evidenced through techniques of modern cuisine, taking forms of spheres and tears. Portuguese cuisine with certainty, and contemporary fusion twist. We hope to serve you.

Reviewed By W-Man77 - Guildford, United Kingdom

Before I go any further I'm going to have another winge about TripAdvisor's 5-point rating system. It's just too crude. So, as per my title, this place deserves better than 4/5 but I will only give 5/5 for somewhere really excellent/exceptional. Rant over!
We were recommended O Engarco by our guide at Quinta da Aveleda who also kindly 'phoned ahead and booked a table for the 8 of us.
Our waiter was excellent - suggesting a variety of petiscos which we followed with a shared steak platter. He also chose wines to go with the dishes and chatted about both. We enjoyed that lunch so much we immediately booked for dinner the next day (the last of out stay in Portugal). That followed a similar pattern - petiscos (mostly different to those we had on our first visit) this time followed by fresh sea bass served at the table.
Verdict - very, very nearly full marks - well worth a visit if you're in the Penafiel area.
